Milton G. Lynch, 88

Milton G. Lynch, 88, of Dagsboro, Del., passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, surrounded by family at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes, Del. He was born July 25, 1928, in Williamsville, Del., to the late Charlie W. and Mildred (Bunting) Lynch.

Lynch had a tremendous life. After serving in Korea from 1947 to 1948, he married his wife, Jean, in 1950, and together they had four children. An avid fisherman and hunter in his youth, Lynch was happiest while outdoors. He enjoyed many years of planting flowers, fruits and vegetables in his garden and frequented Millsboro Lanes, where he bowled. A devoted Phillies and Eagles fan, he loved watching his favorite teams play ball.

He is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Jean V. Lynch; their children, Robert Lynch, Bruce Lynch and wife, Carol, Donna DiNubile and Cheryl Wolff and her husband, Bill; a brother, Clifton Lynch; and nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, all whom loved him greatly.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Winfred and Preston Lynch.

The family would like to give special thanks to the ICU Nursing staff at Beebe for all of their efforts and care.

“We will always carry your memory in our hearts, Milt. We love you.”

A service was scheduled for April 18, 2017, at Bishop-Hastings Funeral Home in Selbyville, Del., with the Pastor Robert Kirby officiating. Burial followed at Roxana (Del.) Cemetery.
